Dormitory Town

19 April - 28 April



Dormitory Town invites audiences to set out on an odyssey through the complexities of mortality. Travelling from Tai Kwun to the Tung Wah Coffin Home, the roaming theatre performance guides its followers through soliloquy and song – into the web of work, rest, and the afterlife – made tangible in the context of a local historical morgue. Undertakers, caretakers, and life enthusiasts share real experiences, prompting a life-affirming rumination on death in the city’s sanctuary of silent inhabitants. Hailing from Catalonia, and showing in Hong Kong for the first time, the piece marks the first Asian adaptation of the Catalan Critics’ Award and El Temps de les Arts Award winner – created through the collaboration of local artists and actors, and Catalan’s Contenidos Superfluos collective.
